This hostel was ideally situated for me in that it was tucked away in the countryside. It was a very simple place yet in that simplicity it was a truly enjoyable stay. The self service kitchen was perfectly outfitted and the rooms were clean and well organized. The staff were fantastic and I would be very pleased to stay again on future visits. Very nice.

Me and my friends had a great time here. We arrived very tired to a lovely house with a super warm welcome. The host, Tom, is a really positive and accommodating guy with great energy. We really felt comfortable here and would recommend it to anyone considering it.

There is only one shower (pay!) and one toilet for all beds as far as I can tell. Very awkward setup, even for just one guest. The whole corridor and room had a faint drainage smell. No individual night-lights. Location is more remote than I thought. Tom is helpful and knowledgeable about places to go and see.

Thanks for your review. We take all comments into consideration. Please note that there are several toilets in the cottage which you might not have noticed as that bathroom was closest to your room.

Very enjoyable stay at Tom's Country Cottage. Quiet time of year so not fully booked. Very relaxed atmosphere. Good bonding with other patrons. Tom's family and pets are lovely. I believe Tom is preparing to build second bath. That will certainly come in handy! My personal preference is a lockable box I can put my backpack in...love having the faith, but not always realistic. As some reviews have mentioned, it's best to have a car. No way to reach facility by foot.

Awesome place. Tom will make you feel very welcome. I did like the location since we had a rental car. Not an ideal place to stay if you are relying on public transport.

Many thanks for your review. The cottage is located in the countryside and therefore, public transport is not as visible as in urban areas. As you had a car, you probably were not aware that there is a bus stop just 20min. walk from our cottage. We are happy to give advice on public transport options any time.

My boyfriend and I found Tom's Comfort Hostel anything but comfortable. We saw high reviews on Hostel World and thought we would give it a try, but we were very displeased with our experience here. The hostel is essentially in the middle of nowhere, the bed is so uncomfortable, lumpy & springy that we sacrificed our duvet so we could put in under us to help make the bed a bit more bearable to sleep in. There is only 1 toilet for everyone to share & shower costs $. No towel. Do not stay here.

Thank you for your review. The cottage is located in a beautiful rural area in the river Suir valley, just 2km outside the next village and 10km from Waterford City Centre. You stayed in a lovely private room for a very reasonable price. It is normal for budget accommodation that a small fee needs to be paid for towel rental. We also gave you the second towel for free because you did not have enough money. As you only stayed for 1 night, you probably did not notice the other 2 bathrooms that are available for guests. As explained, the electric shower gives you access to hot water 24/7 and in accordance with our environmentally-friendly policy we charge 10 Cent per shower. We have never had a complaint about the bed so far and you never mentioned anything to us while you were here.
